what gets stuck in the teeth
by Peter Bracking
the print is small
it is thin
an inability to create or sustain
rich fat images
to feed the unsuspecting
the print is so very thin
making it a simple matter of balance
words on words and the weight
of the words
flexing to the edge of snap
thin print below and below
finely, finally crushed
passing into sound
small thin print
articulated immediately eradicated
except small kernels
